Heartbroken and reeling from the devastating loss, Fikile Mbalula, a prominent figure in South African politics serving as the Secretary-General of the African National Congress (ANC), expressed profound anguish on Monday evening. Using the platform X, formerly known as Twitter, Mbalula shared tragic news that shook the online community.

In his emotional announcement, Mbalula revealed the harrowing reality that his daughter had been brutally taken from him. The news rippled through social media, prompting an outpouring of support and condolences from countless individuals deeply affected by the heart-wrenching revelation.

However, as details emerged, Mbalula clarified that the daughter he referred to was not his biological child but rather a cherished member of his professional circle.

In subsequent updates, Mbalula disclosed that the beloved individual he mourned was Keletile “Kelly” Mathata, a valued colleague who had been an integral part of his office. Tragically, Mathata’s life was cut short in a senseless act of violence at Molewa Pub and Grill in Hebron, Pretoria. Gunmen mercilessly opened fire on their vehicle in what appears to be a targeted attack, leaving Mathata and a male driver fatally wounded.

As the community grapples with the shock and grief of Mathata’s untimely passing, tributes continue to flood in, commemorating her vibrant spirit and contributions. However, amidst the collective mourning, there remains a palpable sense of urgency for answers.

Law enforcement agencies are actively investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident, yet thus far, no arrests have been made, leaving loved ones and supporters clamoring for justice in the wake of this senseless tragedy.
